No I am not a parent.
I am a mortician who specializes in obesity embalming and I also run a health center. Where ironically enough I give free training to overweight people with time / money limitations. Most of the people I train are parents and they bring their kids in with them.

I remember my mom telling my dad that he owed it to her (and us, kids) and that she owed it to him (and us, kids) to do what's necessary to stay healthy and fit. Just grew up with that role-modeled for me and I believe she was right... If you have a spouse or kids, it is something you owe to them, as they do to you.

I am one of those with a "Gland Problem" actually its the autoimmune disease sarcoidosis
My problem is stupid doctors that only believe that my weight problem is caused by over eating and being lazy.
But at the same time i have primary care doctors working for the VA that tell me that i am lazy, not in pain, that fibromyalgia is not a real disorder, and put things in my records like that i am a drug seeker that i am not following a diet to lose weight and not taking medical advice.
I wonder how many of the people that are overweight have disorders that the doctors,
never looked for.
are not treating properly
dismissed as not real.
or never cared if there was another problem.
Many people believe what there doctors tell them even when its wrong or bad advice.
Many never question there doctors when the doctors tell them that nothing is wrong.
I was ashamed of my weight and avoided the camera the last couple of years.
This is before I lost an additional 5 pounds this past summer.
